My Weekend Finds


Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds! I figured that since I do this post every Monday, I might as well have a graphic for it. Thanks to my daughter Lizzy!

I think we went to about forty garage sales on Friday, but I don't have alot to show for it! I'm always happy to add to my pottery collection, especially when it's blue. Or pink. Who am I kidding? I'll take it in any color I can get it!

These lady head vases weren't garage sale finds, but things that my sister was getting rid of. Thanks Mary!

This valentine planter was found at a church flea market. I heart her!

I wanted a big birdhouse to put by the front porch steps, and this beauty is just perfect. It's almost as tall as I am! Actually, that's not as impressive as it sounds, because I'm quite short! I found one other thing at the flea market that just might be one of my most favorite finds ever. But you'll have to wait 'til REDnesday to see it! So, what did you find this weekend?

Great finds! My weekend wasn't nearly as exciting... the only thing I found was a wad of gum stuck to my shoe. :(

Carol,

WOW!!!!!! Love the red, white and blue, and those flowers are unreal!!!!!!! Great idea for the breadbox/picnic basket! You can get the ME borders at any Teaching Tools store or ones like that any time of the year, but I am sure they will be back at Michaels. There are tons to pick from, polka dots, ginghams, you name it, not just ME! And really cute holiday ones! :) I

I really, really like that tall birdhouse. I have a similar one and I put white-wire/white lights on it and light it up in the evenings.

Hi Carol, I'm so sorry I've been out of touch lately. I hope to get back to regular visiting soon.

I love your glittery "Old Glory Cottage" banner on your header. It's certainly the time of year for Old Glory Cottage to shine!
